EA completes move to Switzerland

Electronic Arts has confirmed that the move of its European headquarters from the UK to Switzerland is complete after doors to the new offices officially opened yesterday.

Electronic Arts has confirmed that the move of its European headquarters from the UK to Switzerland is complete after doors to the new offices officially opened yesterday.

Around 90 staff, many of whom previously worked in EA's Chertsey office, are employed at the new HQ in Geneva. They will be responsible for sales and marketing operations in Europe, Asia Pacific, Asia and Latin America.

"When Electronic Arts started its European business in the early 1990s, the natural choice was to go to Britain for language reasons," a spokesperson told Reuters.

"As the company has grown, it makes sense to be closer to the heart of Europe and be at a more neutral location."

EA's Chertsey campus will continue to operate as a development studio under former Criterion exec Fiona Sperry.
